Bangkok — 40 nights

City of Angels

Enjoy cultural, historical, and culinary exploration during your holiday in Bangkok, the capital of Thailand and the most populous city in the country.
Satisfy your inner culture vulture at The Grand Palace and Wat Pho. Change things up with these side-trips from Bangkok: Ayutthaya (King U-Thong Monument, Wat Maha That, &more), Pak Kret (Phra Nang Ruea Lom Shrine, Wat Chonprathan Rangsarit, &more) and Samut Prakan (Ancient City & Erawan Museum). Spend the 10th (Sat) in the animal kingdom at Safari World. There's still lots to do: take in the spiritual surroundings of Temple Of Dawn (Wat Arun), relax and rejuvenate at some of the best spas, take a stroll through Khaosan Road, and see the interesting displays at Jim Thompson House.

For other places to visit, maps, traveler tips, and other tourist information, refer to the Bangkok road trip planner.

Dublin, Ireland to Bangkok is an approximately 17-hour flight. Traveling from Dublin to Bangkok, you'll lose 7 hours due to the time zone difference. Plan for much warmer temperatures traveling from Dublin in November, with highs in Bangkok at 38°C and lows at 29°C. Finish your sightseeing early on the 5th (Thu) to allow enough time to fly to Mai Khao.

Pearl of the Andamans
Thailand's largest island, Phuket lures both die-hard divers and casual beach lovers interested in spending most of their time basking in the sand and munching on local delicacies. Picturesque lagoons and an abundance of modern amenities may be the main incentive for a Phuket vacation, but you can find plenty of other things to do here once you get your fill of sun and sand. Away from the busy waterfront, the island boasts many gardens, Buddhist temples, museums, and aquariums that deserve a top spot on any traveler's Phuket itinerary.
